Question: Can the police enter your home without a warrant?
Here in Texas, if police officers come and knock on your door and ask for permission to search, your answer should be, “Do you have a warrant?” If they don’t have a warrant, say no.
You have no obligation to let them into your house. You don’t get any benefits for letting them in. In fact, instruct them to get a warrant. I suspect if they had enough evidence to get a warrant, they would already have one.
